    Pirate Football traveled to Elm Street in Brownstown to open 2009 Mid Southern Conference play against the rival Braves.  
    Elm Street ended up being a nightmare for the host team instead of the visitors, as the Pirates' defense dug in and stopped the Braves' high?powered offense for a 35?14 victory.  
    The game was ended due to thunderstorms with 10:46 left in the game.  
    The game began with each team marching the field twice and scoring touchdowns, including an 85 yard kick?off return by senior Michael Baines and a six yard pass from freshman Aaron Daniel to senior Jake Cook.  
    With the score tied at 14?14 starting the second quarter, the Pirates' defense took control, and their offense kept on digging. The Pirates' Aaron Daniel intercepted a Brave pass on the Braves' next drive then countered with a six play 51 yard drive that ended with Michael Baines rushing 10 yards for another touchdown with 2:18 left in the first half (21?14).  
    The Pirates opened the second half with a 12 play 62 yard drive that ended with an Aaron Daniel one yard run for a touchdown with 5:42 left in the third quarter.
    The Braves fumbled the ball on their next possession when the Pirates marched 72 yards in 10 plays ending with a Ethan Bowen 21 yard touchdown run to make the score 35?14 in the middle of the fourth quarter.  
    Aaron Daniel was named the Tumbletown Offensive Player of the game while Logan McCutchen was named Tumbletown Defensive Player of the game by Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting.

Silver Creek football begins season with win over Clarksville PDF Print E-mail

    This year’s Silver Creek High School junior varsity football team had the perfect start to the season.   With renewed spirit, the Silver Creek Dragons monopolized the game, easily winning over the more seasoned Clarksville Generals 25-2.
    Rain was in the forecast, bleachers generously donated by Century Industries, Sellersburg, were being pulled into place just before game time, the concession stand would be yards away from the fans, yet nothing would deter the almighty Dragons and their loyal fans.  Dragon supporters came prepared with chairs, giant umbrellas and an appetite for football and dragon burgers!
    Under the direction of head Coach Mike Donahue and Assistant Coach Kevin Brooks and with the added expertise of the specialty coaches, this relatively young Dragon team took control early in the game and never relinquished it.  
    Mark your calendars for the remaining Dragon games. Schedules for both JV and Silver Creek Middle School can be obtained on the Dragon website: www.scdragonfootball.com or through the schools.
